I stayed in this hotel for business travel, very clean, excellent location next to a shopping mall, excellent breakfast and good service. Staff are very courteous and friendly, overall a nice place.
You can walk from the hotel to the mall, where you can find great brand stores and very good restaurants. Hotel includes breakfast with high quality and variety of fruits, juice, eggs, etc... Good choice to stay in this hotel

Good quiet location, very clean, well maintained, great breakfast. Nice pool area too. Rooms are on the small side though. Overall a nice place to stay if you don't need to be near the beach area. You have to pay for breakfast (about $8.00) but the quality and service were very good.

Totally average and nice without any thing to really note .
There are a few chain rest. within walking distance.
The breakfast service was un even but the staff tried hard to be nice.
No compelling reason to return here versus another property nearby

Staff is great and friendly, however very annoying problems that shouldn't happen. I have stayed here a few times and I am done here. The air conditioning units stink...Impossible to switch from cool to heat without the units shutting down completely. Management aware, and this is just a dirt cheap unit they have put in. Multiple shower heads stink, they leak or don't work right. The valve turning shower off doesn't work in a few rooms I have stayed in. The fitness room equipment is antique and doesn't work. I went to use a wipe in the fitness room and it was completely dried up. Etc. Etc. Annoying stuff that shouldn't happen in a chain of usual quality. I will stay elsewhere next time for sure.

Although my expectations weren't extremely high, this hotel definitely exceeded them! Traveling with my family to the beach, this was a very nice hotel (although not near the beach itself). It is very close to a mall and a couple of restaurants. The staff was VERY VERY personable and friendly upon my late night arrival. I only wish I remembered the young lady's name at the front desk that checked me in. Overall it was a very nice hotel and I would definitely recommend staying here if in the area. If you're looking for a location to stay at for the beach, you may want to choose a location closer, but this is definitely worth the 10-15 minute drive.

Stayed July 2012, traveled with family

Smaller Marriott Courtyard (3 floors, under 90 rooms) located in area of hotels, restaurants, & shops; but, approximately 10-miles (16 km) away from beach.

Functional, comfortable accommodations to lay one's head for brief stay, but may be irritating for longer stay:

• Weak WiFi signal, but wired Internet available if you bring your own Ethernet cable.

• Even with desk chair adjusted to tallest height, arm rests are too low -- about 10 inches beneath the desktop. (Feel like a child eating at grown-ups table.) No matter how much tinkering /maneuvering you do, can't work comfortably with laptop on desk. 

• Shower faucet handle came off in my hand.

• Finish worn off dated fixtures such as water faucet; bathroom lighting is dim/yellowish.

• Thicker, softer towels needed; took 3 thin, cat-tongue-rough bath towels to dry off.

• Through room's sliding glass door is narrow balcony overlooking parking lot; enough space for standing only. Room's air conditioner (mounted by balcony) blows hot air making it uncomfortable to stand on balcony for any length of time.

• Swivel, flat-screen TV has analog cable channels, but no digital/HDTV. (Also no MSNBC channel.)

• Can hear high-pitched voices of gleeful children in hallway through room's thin walls. (*MANY* children throughout hotel enjoying their holiday.)

• Well-worn hotel carpet needs replacing; carpeting in room is better.

-------------
Satisfying:

• Much appreciated mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, & feather pillows.

• Breakfast: $9 all-you-can eat or $8 continental.

• Eateries within 5-minute walk: Red Lobster, Chili, IHOP, & quite a few others are brief walk/drive away.

• Northwest Florida Beaches International airport (ECP) approximately 20-mile (32 km) drive. (Estimate 25-35 minutes depending on traffic.)

If business traveler, Courtyard Panama City (CPC) may not meet your needs, but may be close to your worksite.

If holiday traveler, CPC may not be as luxurious as you desire or as close to beach (& other tourist spots) that you may prefer; but, if you've children, they'll have lots of play mates.

-------------
Be careful not to confuse *Florida* CPC reviews with reviews about the 2 Courtyards in "Panama City" in the COUNTRY of "Panama" (that inadvertently appear here):
• Courtyard Panama MetroMall (Avenida Domingo Diaz via Tocumen, Centro Comercial MetroMall)
• Courtyard Panama Real Hotel (Via Israel Multiplaza Pacific Mall)
